Waking the Sleeping Giant: Engaging and Capitalizing on the Sociocultural Strengths of the Latino Community
A family literacy program for Salvadoran refugees and other Latinos in Arlington (Virginia) is analyzed from a sociocultural perspective as exemplifying an educational project designed and implemented by grassroots organizations in an increasingly diverse, multicultural/multilingual community. The program addresses the educational needs of poor illiterate families while drawing on parents' culture and extensive life experiences. (Contains 68 references.) (TD)
